So wait, is this allegedly racist guy RH156?

I'm not sure about racist but he has strong opinions about people with "negro or asian blood" playing for England.
Must admit, whilst I find it objectionable and wrong-headed, I'd question whether the article is defamatory.
Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion
- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
...wish I'd chosen to specialise in defamation cases rather than chasing around the criminal courts vainly chasing and occasionally, but not as often as I hoped, achieving that elusive thing called justice
I could've retired by now, and taken to spending my whole life maligning the misunderstood, rather than just a few hours here and there
I actually find articles like that particularly annoying to add to their distaste, because they muddle an important issue (players playing for their second, third or fourth choice countries who, had they not been involved in international cricket, they'd cheer against) with race. Race and nationality and not tied at the hip, and all stuff like this does is sully the good arguments of folk who don't like the eroding sense of national representation in not only cricket but sport worldwide. The cause of this is the Kruger van Wyks of the world; not the Nasser Hussains.
